Anger Management Group to meet

Old Colony is now offering an Anger Management Group to be conducted during the school day. Melissa Whelan, School Adjustment Counselor and Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, and Anne Spirlet, Guidance Counselor and Licensed Mental Health Clinician, will run the group.

The group is not mandatory or a requirement of the school. The purpose of the group is to help students learn how to recognize triggers that make them angry and to discuss more appropriate methods of handling their anger. Each student meets individually to discuss the purpose of this group, as well as elicit their attendance. Parents permission is required for student participation.

To get more information about the program, please call Anne Spirlet at 508-873-8011, ext. 128.
